The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
This fall, Lorre, 60, expanded his monster presence on CBS to four shows on two nights, adding the freshman Anna Faris and Allison Janney comedy Mom. The series — from showrunner Gorodetsky, 57, a former executive producer on Lorre’s veteran Two and a Half Men, which now is run by Reo, 67, and Patterson, 46 — opened modestly.
Under Molaro, 46, The Big Bang Theory returned bigger than ever in its seventh season, setting a viewership record with 20.4 million viewers and a massive 6.1 rating among adults 18-to-49. It also earned eight Emmy noms, including a third win for its lead, Jim Parsons. Additionally, the 45-year-old Higgins’ Mike & Molly could prove a sturdy pinch hitter when it returns to Mondays in November for its fourth season, filling the void left by the recently axed new CBS comedy We Are Men.
